25 Years of Magical Excellence

Greetings friends,

If you believe in something my friends.. stick to it!
Do not let your dreams be taken from you by the ridicule of others.
Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams.

Live Your Dream

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

          –Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 – 1860)

McBride’s Magic & Mystery School – 25th Anniversary

25 Years

Can you believe it has been almost 25 years since we started Mystery School? At first people did not understand what we were up to. Some thought we were too progressive, others thought it was a ridiculous idea. Now, 25 years later, we have grown into the world’s leader in magic education! What’s more, we’re still growing.
January will be the start of something global for us.

The McBride Magical Masterpiece Series
Inspired by the masters, I have created a new way to share my very best magic with you. It is “one on one” personal training. I really do feel that personal mentoring is the best way to learn great magic. Take a look at this video that explains how it works.

Magic Shop

Could this be the World’s Most Exclusive Magic Shop?

A few years back we expanded the magic school. Many thought we were nuts for opening a “brick and mortar” magic shop in this digital age. The shop is only open to our students attending LIVE classes. The rest of you are invited to the online version of the shop at https://www.magicalwisdom.com/shop/

Upcoming World Tour News: France & China

My fall tour kicks off with a stop in Hot Springs, Arkansas for the Maxwell Blade Magic Festival. If you’re in that part of the country between Sept. 24-27, I hope to see you there.

After Arkansas, I will be off to France and China for additional big magic festivals this month. There will be links to each event on my calendar soon, so do have a look there again in a few days.

October is full of magic events here at Mystery School. There is still time (and one or two slots available) for you to join us for our Focus on Street Magic Class (Oct. 9-11) and for our Mystery School homecoming, otherwise known as the Magic & Meaning Conference (Oct. 21-24).

Mat Jeff Abbi

Las Vegas Magic News:

Abbi and I visited with AGT winner Mat Franco at his new show at the LINQ casino. Mat mentioned to the audience that he studies at our Mystery School— thank you, Mat! His use of multi-media in the show is impressive.

Our friend Leo Diaz is working with Dirk Arthur and his wild jungle animals at The Westgate.

David Copperfield continues to insert brilliant new magic in his ever-changing show.

It seems like many of our friends at our WONDERGROUND are appearing on the Penn & Teller FOOL US TV show!

Christian Diamond and Randilyn are reopening their Halloween show at the Royal Resort.

Cathy Laveau
Something Special at our September Wonderground:

African American female magician Cathy Laveau will debut her show The Dark Side of Magic at WONDERGROUND this Thursday, Sept. 17th.

Thanks to Tim Wise and Christian Diamond and our team of workers who expanded the stage at the Olive, now we can host full-on illusion shows!

  9PM – Christian Cagigal Presents OBSCURA
ok…sometimes smaller is better!
A teeny-tiny magic show, performed LIVE on a big screen! Join magician Christian Cagigal, as he weaves fairy tales, dark fables and strange happenings into an intimate and engaging evening, fraught with wonder, mystery and imagination. With Obscura, Cagigal returns to his roots as an up-close and personal performer, peppering some of his favorite short stories with witty and eccentric demonstrations of close-up card magic and more. The entire show is performed under the watchful eye of a video camera, and projected as large as can be, above Cagigal, so the audience can’t miss a thing.
The Diamond Parlor Room-Your host Christian Diamond
10PM – LION FLUDD – Is it magic or a hustle?
